My quattro Avant will soon need some new sneakers. The timing would be right to fit a set of winter tyres, but this would be the first time in over 15 years of car ownership that I've bothered... and I'm not sure if it's worth it or not? I live in rural Somerset, the roads out here do get pretty dicy in the frost and snow and even when it's not cold enough for the white stuff there's plenty of mud and **** to contend with. Quattro plus winter tyres seem to make sense, but if I understand it right you don't really get the benefit unless the temp drops below 7c. Thoughts, anyone?
